    im taking it your on the stock rom, if that's the case i would recommend drodspeed or ady's or imos. in third post here (this thread is constantly being updated with all the new roms kernels radios etc.. all that good stuff.) to overclock i use setcpu and it hasn't ever let me down.
    IMHO the das bamf team make the best roms out there. and if your feeling adventurous they made a complete port of sense 3.0 aka BAMF Sense 3.0 RC3 you will need to flash a new radio in order to use it though.

    before doing anything as always you should make a backup, and if you haven't already delete/ or move PG05IMG out of the root of you sdcard.. i learned that the hard way. and my final tip is to only use rom manager to make backups, never flash zips with it. always flash zips in recovery manually.

    I'm running gingeritis. It's good ROM. You can find it on themikmik.com. it use to be on xda but he pulled it cuz of a argument or something. Bamf is good too but I got the best battery out of gingeritis.

    But the most fun is flashing the different roms. Also make sure you read and re-read what u need before u flash the ROM. And ALWAYS make a back up.

    Glad you got it man. Sorry I didn't get back to you on your post earlier, was out all day and just now got a chance to sit and get caught up on everything. I'm still figuring out which ROM and/or kernel to use on mine So far the Stock type debloated Rom has given me the best battery life. Bamf 1.8.6 is a pretty good one also.
